Staff Summary: Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) mosquito control program currently operates April through September, encompassing many sites throughout the Eagle Valley, including the Carson River from south of the prison to Deer Run Bridge. Mosquito control is an important and basic public health function. CCHHS believes to reduce the impact on the ecosystem it is prudent to target at the larval stage, rather than at the adult stage of the mosquito. CCHHS uses a narrow spectrum larvicide applied at appropriate times based on field surveillance.

Central Life Sciences is the sole manufacturer of ALTOSID® mosquito larvicide and products and markets directly to all U.S. end users via Agency Agreement. The agreement allows Central Life Sciences to sell direct to end-user public agencies through five authorized agent companies. Competitively bidding this purchase would yield the same pricing results.
